## Turing Test Today

The Turing Test, proposed by British mathematician and computer scientist Alan Turing in 1950, is a measure of a machine’s ability to exhibit intelligent behavior equivalent to, or indistinguishable from, that of a human. Turing introduced the test in his seminal paper “Computing Machinery and Intelligence,” where he asked the question, “Can machines think?” Instead of directly answering this, Turing proposed a practical test, which has since become known as the Turing Test.
